[S4/E16] Horseback Rides in a Pineapple Farm

Season 4, Episode 16 – This week, some tasty lager from Sudwerk, and hoppy IPA from El Segundo.

Sudwerk and El Segundo Brewing are two breweries that have found a special, warm place in our collective 4B hearts. On today’s episode, we’re featuring beers from both breweries, ranging from gose, to doppelbock, to IPA. Variety is the spice of life, after all..

We kick off the show this week with a journey into the 4B mailbag while sampling some hand-delivered brews from Davis, California’s Sudwerk Brewing Co, and answer listener questions about Belgian beer, the Craft Brewers Conference, and Micheladas, of all things.

We wrap up the episode with an experiment of sorts with El Segundo Brewing Company‘s first three IPAs in their Bursted Hop series of beers, all of which focus on one type of hop that was added exclusively at the end of the boil in the brewing process, rather than at two or three different stages.

Big thanks as always to the fine folks at Sudwerk for hooking us up, yet again. We’ve got nothin’ but love for yas.

[S4/E8] Five Brewers Get Lei’d

Season 4, Episode 8 – Firkfest is coming up, and we’re celebrating by drinking some tropical brews!

Firkfest 2017 is nearly upon us, and we’re gearing up for this year’s tiki-tropical themed event by drinking a plethora of fruity, topical inspired brews. What is Firkfest, you ask? It’s our very own Greg Nagel‘s annual cask ale festival in Anaheim, California.

We must say that for the most part, the beers on the show this week are tropically delicious, if that’s your thing. John does admit during the show, however, that drinking this much fruity, tropical goodness can be a bit taxing over time. It’s best to pace yourself when going to the island of tropics and mix up the styles a bit. Luckily, at this year’s Firkfest, you’ll be able to do just that, since there will be over 30 different casks of tiki-brew available!

It should also be mentioned that we are joined this week by our honorary fifth brewer, Natalie DeNicholas, who is also the host of our newest (soon to be) endeavor, Pink Beer Corner! Details about PBC will be coming soon, so be on the lookout.

Be sure to pickup your tickets for Firkfest! There’s also a special discount code mentioned during the episode that may or may not get you $10 off your tickets, but you didn’t read that here…
